Welcome to our summer edition of the Light of the North!
As God willing, life slowly begins to return to normal after the last year and a half of Covid misery there is, fortunately, no shortage of good news from the Diocese, and some truly inspirational stories: Glen Reynolds reports on the recent ordinations of Christopher Doig and Malachy Eze to the priesthood; Lidia Konar interviews a Polish family faced with a life-affirming test of faith; Eileen Grant takes a look at a lesser-known Marian devotion, “The Seven Joys of Mary” and Fr Domenico Zanrè suggests a summer read which has the papal seal of approval! In addition, Margaret Bradley discovers a blooming successful community garden at St Andrew’s Church, Braemar, and on a more light-hearted note, Canon Peter Barry tells how ten little jacketed bundles of joy were borne into the world at Pluscarden Abbey.
